Institute Committees with Student Positions
Board of Trustees
The CIIS Board of Trustees is a governance body with legal and fiscal responsibility for the Institute. The board meets three Saturdays a year, and membership consists of eighteen outside members with specific areas of competence and interest in the Institute’s mission and goals, the president (ex officio), and elected representatives from faculty, students, and alumni. These elected representatives each serve as the voice of their constituency.
The Student Representative to the Board of Trustees is a voting member of the Board and attends all three meetings of the year. The Student Representative also serves on one of the following committees of the Board: Academic Affairs, Development, Executive, Finance, Students and Alumni, or Trusteeship, on the Friday before each of the Board meetings.
